Create Health Homes for People with Mental Illness

Governor Kasich's first Jobs Budget authorized Ohio Medicaid to design a person-centered system of care, called a health home, to improve care coordination for high-risk beneficiaries. Ohio Medicaid teamed up with MHAS to focus first on creating health homes for Medicaid beneficiaries with SPMI. Ohio Medicaid received federal approval and in October 2012 began claiming enhanced federal match to pay for care coordination in SPMI-focused health homes. However, as originally designed, the health home model was not financially sustainable, so Medicaid and MHAS discontinued the project in 2015.
